Novelis planning $5 million expansion to technology center in Spokane Valley

Atlanta-based Novelis Inc. is planning a major expansion to its Solatens Technology Center in Spokane Valley.

Novelis has filed preliminary plans with the city to build a $5 million, 11,780-square-foot addition to the technology center at 16004 E. Euclid Ave.

In 2011, Novelis moved into the existing facility, which is used to improve molten metal and advanced solidification technology.

Nashville, Tennessee-based Gresham Smith is the project architect.

Novelis, a leading producer of flat-rolled aluminum products and the world’s largest aluminum recycler, operates 23 facilities in nine countries. The company has more than 11,000 employees and generates more than $12 billion in annual revenue.

Novelis launched in 2005 as a spin-off from the Canadian aluminum company Alcan Inc. It was acquired in 2007 by Hindalco Industries Limited and became part of the Aditya Birla Group, a multinational conglomerate based in Mumbai.
